With Jesus Christ

I've lost 35 pounds with Jesus Christ. Why do I say it like that? Because I get so tired of all the commercials giving Jenny Craig, Nutri system, and Weight Watchers all the credit. Those might work for some, but I have chosen to allow God to guide and direct me in my weight loss journey, which is not a diet but a lifestyle change in which I will be continuing long after I reach my goal. So the only horn you will hear me tooting is that of Jesus Christ, because "He HAS given me the victory" so I continue on (slow as it may be sometimes) knowing that I will reach the goal that He has given me. Thank you Jesus!

I posted the above on Facebook because I really felt it needed to be said. There seems to be such a push for all sorts of artificial ways to lose weight these day. Good old fashioned - eat healthy and exercise seems to be too hard for people. Or maybe it is just too simple for people to believe it would work.

A friend left the following comment on my post and the way she worded it was so perfect that I just decided to copy and past here.


Losing weight with a diet aide means you are chained to that aide forever or when you stop eating that way you will gain the weight back. Losing the way you have--with God guiding and teaching you, means you are chained to HIM! I can't think of anyone better to be with! Congratulations! I am so proud of you!"
